Forum: On Reinvention
Thursday, December 3, 2020 – Paul Grier, VP for Institutional Services will be joining us to bring his expertise. Our discussion will include re-invention vignettes: case studies of real PC(USA)congregations who have made sometimes-bold changes to strengthen their ministries. We’ll hear an overview of the work they undertook and explore the factors that led to success or disappointment. In addition, we’ll discuss facilities problems that are common to our congregations and review a few solutions that others have tried with good results.
